    YES! I do support Texas being able to secede! And I hope they don't let the door hit them in the posterior on the way out! I support their "right" to secede as long as they get NONE of our nukes, none of our other military. Everything else that they need from America, they have to buy.

    Why do I support Texas being able to secede? Because they would serve as a wonderful object lesson about what happens when modern-day conservatives are fully in charge, without them having a window forcibly installed in their navels by us liberals so they can see where they're going. Sam Brownback in Kansas is already serving as such an object lesson, but most of the nation hasn't really picked up on what's happening there...but if Texas seceded, yes, we'd ALL see what happens as a result.

    Hillary has a lot of bad baggage right now, but there is a fool born any minute, so who knows what 2016 will bring?

    "To secede from the Union and set up another government would cause war. If you go to war with the United States, you will never conquer her, as she has the money and the men. If she does not whip you by guns, powder, and steel, she will starve you to death. It will take the flower of the country — the young men."

    Secession is not revolution.

    Difference.

    The CSA was not attempting to alter the form of government of the United States

    so you are saying it if 35% of a state wanted to secede and 65% does not want to then state can go ahead and secede?

    How about Texas seceding and entering into a federation with Mexico? I think Mexicans like Texas and there's a natural culinary crossover.
